6.0 IC and 6.0 Trans Cooler in an OBS

Just installed a 6.0 Trans Cooler into my 1995 along with the 6.0 intercooler I had previously put in.

I originally tried to install the trans cooler with the factory brackets but ran into a clearance issue with the intercooler. So I popped the rivets and did some grinding on the mounts and ended up bolting on mounts that attached to the top of the radiator support (you can see them in the pic with the IC installed).

One thing you will have to do is find or make 1/2" to 5/16" barbed reducers as the stock lines are 5/16" and the 6.0 cooler has 1/2" barbs. I found some on the net for about $35 a piece, but I opted to make mine from parts at the local hardware store for about $4 a pop.

This new trans cooler took about an quart and a half more fluid and is gigantic compared to the stock unit. I don't have a trans temp gauge but I imagine the temps will drop drastically.

I have a 6.0 trans cooler in the garage and I've been wondering how to go about installing it in my OBS (no IC... yet). This looks like a good option... fairly easy to do?

It should be very easy, especially not having an IC filling up the front of your truck. The biggest pain will be removing and installing the bumper, front end, etc... I would plan it out ahead if you want to install an IC later down the road because real estate is really tight in there.

No, people say that they will lower your egt's about 100 egt's, but it is not proven as far as i know.

Plus alot of the the 6.0 coolers have plastic endtanks. Metal are far better, and look better imo.

Looking good man. Your thread here made me go out and buy all the stuff to do this.

Not trying to hijack your thread, but I just started doing this last night in the driveway. What a PITA!!! The only pictures I have looked at are of 4x4 trucks. There must be a big difference in the sway bars for a 2wd and 4x4. Mine intercooler was wedging itself between the core support and the sway bar BAD. Absolutely no way I could drive it this way. Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do to remedy this?
